You don’t need to join the crowds in Durban and Cape Town at the seaside this festive season. Going away can tally up fast, and not every company has the funds to fork out bonuses. Think out of the box and instead do something a little creative locally. 

Book a romantic stay at Bruna’s Italian if you live in Jozi or close to Pretoria and take time out to explore this exciting and fascinating capital of South Africa. 

If you are in for some serious downtime, simply sip cocktails on the shared pool deck, relax in bed for with a great book, a Netflix movie or catch an EZ Shuttle or Uber for a day out to one of the great outdoors, cultural or historical spots that Pretoria is famous for. 

Alternatively, pack a picnic basket and make a day of the Union Buildings or Voortrekker Monument. Whether you love horse riding, hiking trails, picnics, pretty scenery or love to unpack one of the exhilarating game farms not far from Pretoria, make this festive season one that is memorable and unforgettable. 

Be a local tourist and get smart this festive season. Book one of the two gorgeous, comfy suites at Bruna’s Italian for a brilliant time. 

Avoid the crowds and do something fab locally instead – after all, you don’t have to go to Italy to enjoy a little bit of Italian hospitality. Bruna’s Italian offers creature comforts from start to finish.
